Canine birding


No time for pure birding or ringing today; the only birds recorded were whilst conducting chores or dog minding!  An early morning run with the dogs around Harlestone Heath and the rough area between there and Kings Heath produced no unusual birds, perhaps the best being Willow Warbler and Nuthatch.

A Raven flew north west over the garden at Hanging Houghton late morning and 2 Nuthatches were around the garden on and off for much of the day.  An early afternoon dog walk provided 3 Spotted Flycatchers and a Little Owl at Lamport Hall plus the resident Nuthatch.  The final dog walk today was late this evening at Blueberry Farm, Maidwell and yielded 3 Whinchats and 2 Barn Owls.
